China Shanghai International Children's Book Fair


November 2019

About the Fair

The 7th CCBF is taking place across 3-days in November 2018 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Centre.

China boasts a growing children’s book market. The number of Chinese middle-class families is rising and it has become easier for parents to buy books through retails websites such as Taobao, Amazon and Dangdang. As a result, the children’s book market is growing at 10% - 15% a year according to Publishers Weekly.

After six successful editions, the China Shanghai International Children's Book Fair (CCBF) has quickly become an important event for the global publishing industry. The fair provides a leading copyright exchange hub for children's books. It plays an important role in promoting Chinese children's literature internationally and reading culture among young children as the only event dedicated to books for children ages 0-16 years old.

CCBF has successfully brought together over 300 exhibitors from many professional backgrounds and attracted 33,796 visitors.

The fair offers a wide range of activities. Some of the notable activities are the Golden Pinwheel Young Illustrators Competition, the Chen Bochui International Children's Literature Award, the Authors Festival, the Shanghai Visiting International Publishers Programme (SHVIP), other professional seminars and events to promote reading.
